Recipe for Apple Yeast Bread. Here's a slightly sweet yeast bread recipe, studded with diced apples. It's great buttered for breakfast and it also makes great French Toast!


  • 1 envelope dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup warm water, divided
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 cups diced fresh apples
  • 1 egg white, beaten


  1. Makes 2 large loaves
  2. Pour 1/2 cup warm water, about 85 to 115° F., into the bowl of a large food processor. Sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the water and mix at low speed. Let stand for five minutes. Slowly mix in remaining water, eggs, vanilla and salt. Slowly add flour a cup at a time. Mix on high for about a minute or two. The dough should turn into a ball and roll around the processor. If the dough does not ball up because it's to dry, add water one tablespoon at a time until it does. If your mixture is more like a batter, add flour one tablespoon at a time. Mix in fruit. Remove from food processor. Place in an oiled bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Grease and flour two large loaf pans. Punch down dough. Divide dough between two loaf pans, cover and let rise again, about 1/2 hour. preheat oven to 375°F. Brush top of loaves with beaten egg white and bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown.
